Carole Faith has had a lifelong love of horses but came to riding only in her late teens. Some years later, thrown in at the deep end exercising showjumpers she learnt that treating the horse with a more sensitive approach led to fewer bruises, bites and unscheduled meetings with terra firma. Carole trained as an aestheticienne in 1987 and gradually began to work more on animals than humans, finding essential oils by fortuitous accident some years ago. Carole later qualified as an aromatherapist with the specific aim of working with horses and has also studied with Caroline Ingraham who is well known for her work in the equine sphere. Carole is married and lives on the Hampshire/Wiltshire border with five horses and three dogs where she has her own essential oil therapy practice, concentrating mainly on horses and their riders.
